Justice John Tsoho has obviously declared he is not a competent judge but a member of the prosecuting counsel. Proceedings in a competent court of jurisdiction requires a judge or juries who are independent of the executive arm of the government and neither allies to the prosecuting nor the defending counsels, to enable him pass an impartial judgement. The outright aversion for Nnamdi Kanu, displayed by Tsoho in court on the 5th of April, 2016, has kept conscientious people in bewilderment.
One of the characteristics of a competent and a non-biased judge presiding over a case, is fair hearing from both counsels as long as they speak within a given time frame. Court attendees not only witnessed Tsoho's abrupt interruption of the defense counsel’s adumbration to prove that charges of treasonable felony against Kanu, is baseless, but they also witnessed the inherent bias, recklessly displayed by Tsoho.

John Tsoho realizes that his allies cum paymaster (DSS and Buhari respectively) cannot justify their charges, therefore, he decided to avert the embarrassment that would have befallen them through perversion of justice. They also witnessed a non-practicing lawyer - Mr. Idakwo, who is an operative of Department of State Security (DSS) and Kanu’s interrogator, dressed in legal regalia in court to stand as the prosecuting council. What a mockery for the Nigerian judiciary. The resident judge of the high court - Justice Ibrahim Auta, being aware of the corrupt practices of Tsoho and allowing him to continue the case, has proven the incompetency of the Federal High Court, Abuja, in handling such cases.
Preceding this legal assault, is Tsoho's rule on a case that is yet to be heard by a court when he said "If granted bail, he will commit same crime". This unintellectual comment makes one wonder if Tsoho is an accomplice to the said crime. The secret trial permitted by this judge of the jungle (Nigeria), is a big blow to fellow Common Wealth Nations who are said to be practicing a different legal system from that of the Francophone countries. The vicious judge - Tsoho, of the British contraption – Nigeria, cited a legal practice in the Ivory Coast, as a reference, when Ivory Coast clearly practices a francophone legal system different from that practiced in Nigeria.
It is clear to everyone whose instinct is at alert, that Nigerian government and her judiciary has acknowledged the fact that the amalgamation of Northern and Southern protectorates which brought about Nigeria has expired. Therefore they seek for deceptive, illegal and malevolent ways (employing francophone judicial system) to retain the already expired amalgamation. We Biafrans have decided that there is no turning back, as we have countless Biafrans who have gone to the 'land of no return' because of this noble cause.
